There is a covered 600-seat open-air theatre on top of Riihivuori hill where the back of the stage offers a beautiful scene over Lake Päijänne. Riihivuori Theatre also serves as a venue for concerts and other events. The theatre has been leased to Uusi Iloinen Teatteri, and the summer 2022 programme features the play “Tukkijoella”, among others.
Uusi Iloinen Teatteri, or UIT, is a Finnish entertainment theatre company established in 1978 and the only professional revue company in Finland. The mission of the traditional musical theatre company is to continue and elevate the Finnish revue tradition. In addition to the annual spring revue at the Peacock Theatre in Linnanmäki, the theatre company also performs on open-air theatre arenas in the summer and on cruise ships.
